The ”Listicle Number” slide is used when you need to communicate a major part of a video, when doing listicles, countdowns and so on. This slide type displays the number or letter of your choosing and a headline that you’d use as statement for the subsequent slides before the next ”Listicle Number”.
This slide is built on the design pattern that there will be more than one of these, so keep that in mind when using this slide, that it will probably lead the viewer into thinking that this is the first in a series.
A fully used Listicle Number. The image scales down to a position where it's the same as the start position for a Simple Slide, for example. A great way to get better asset economy.
Behavior and usage
The number is pretty self explanatory, even though it of course also can take a letter. This field is made for a maximum of 3 characters. There is no automatic numbering in the tool, so you will have to pay attention to looking through the storyboard in order for your numbers to be correct.
The caption field is the headline of the slide and holds the main text. Use this for explaining what happens over the following slides. The caption animates in after the number, so that’s the sequence.
We darken the background over the whole lifespan of the slide, to make sure that all text is legible.
Credit text is derived from the credit field in the asset browser. Since all assets in Story Engine are their own instance you could use the credit field for additional information as well, such as a source reference or other. This field is not directly editable from the storyboard view, instead you access it through the asset browser’s detail view. You can turn off the credit text altogether from the storyboard side pane if you wish.
